I was debating over a couple of Re-Styles this week, but because of a few parties, the glitter heels won out in the end. Welcome everyone to my Project Re-Style Monday. I have only 5 more Re-Styles left to reach the the one year mark.
The principle is simple and seductively clever: solar lights that store energy during the day and release light at night. These can be purchased ready-made in a variety of colors (yellow, blue and red) but they can also be built at home . A simple, less-technical approach involves buying a conventional solar-powered yard lamp and then essentially harvesting it for key pieces to put in a jar.
Mason Jars Mod Podge in Gloss (buy it here) Food coloring Ramekins to mix colors Newspaper or paper bag Mix food coloring with a T or so of water into individual ramekins. You can do any color combination you like.
A fun and easy project with a beautiful payoff.
Do you remember that book, A Very Young Dancer , by Kill Krementz? Apparently it was quite an influential book for all my sisters and me. I was looking at a copy while we were visiting my sister last weekend, and it's especially interesting to read again as an adult; the little girl in the book danced the part of Marie for George Balanchine in his version of The Nutcracker , for Pete's sake!
